News in Review Raves: Dancing the Night Away

News in Review Raves: Dancing the Night Away

Adolescence itself is recognized by sociologists and other social scientists as a subculture. In this News in Review story, social values, norms and behaviour patterns unique to this subculture are examined through the phenomenon of the rave – a relatively recent occurrence that recalls other mass-appeal events among young people, and yet one that manifests unique aspects, especially in the area of personal and collective behaviour. The role of fashion, drugs, music, dance and peer culture in general are also implicit in this story.
